The dentist will know better if you have a periapical x-ray of the wisdom tooth area and will immediately confirm the infection of tooth. Yes, it can become infected around the gums while coming in. That is pretty common. The best thing to do is keep it very clean. This will be a bit painful at first, but then as it gets clean, it will feel better. Your best option is to go to a dentist and most likely have them removed. Very few people have room for their wisdom teeth. You can tell the difference between pain from erupting and pain from an infection because pain from eruption will be pretty much constant and not too many things will make it better.

What is the difference between latent infection and inapparent infection?

An inapparent infection occurs when a susceptible person is exposed to an agent, is consequently infected, but neverdevelops clinical symptoms (subclinical). An inapparent infection may result in immunity - but they may not develop immunity and could even become a carrier.In contrast, an exposed susceptible person may develop symptoms (clinical infection), but later enter a period where they no longer exhibit those symptoms. This person would be said to have a "latent infection". They have not recovered - they are still infected -- and they might start to exhibit clinical symptoms later.Exposed ---- Infected ------ no symptoms --------------------------------------> Resolution INAPPARENT INFECTIONExposed ---- Infected ----- symptoms ----no symptoms ---- symptoms ----> Resolution|< Latent Infection>|- Dominick A.
